Biography

BRAD MACHADO Born June 26, 1983 in Milton Ontario. Ever since the young age of five, Brad has always demonstrated a passion for music. His parents enrolled him into piano lessons with the Royal Conservatory of Music when he was about 7 years old. Throughout his years with the Conservatory, Brad also joined a rock band as a lead singer and keyboardist. The group stayed together for about 4 years touring around southern Ontario, and entering band competitions. At the age of 13, Brad began to unfold his interest for electronic music. Learning on a 3-track synthesizer, he slowly began to learn the foundations of production. At the age of 16, Brad also began to learn the art of Dj’n. He slowly started to get himself gigs at Christmas parties, weddings, etc. Still today, Brad has a dream of getting into the club scene, playing his own music live.

In 2003, Brad produced and released his first debut single called “Want You Now” Radio icon Tony Monaco (Z103.5) heard the track and pitched it over to SPG Music to feature it on their next freestyle compilation called “Freestyle Heaven Vol 5”, alongside other artists Voodoo and Serano, Joee, Ellissa, and the one and only Stevie B, were also featured on the compilation. “Want You Now” was a great experience for Brad. His single hit the top 10 freestyle chart at 8 in Canada. Since then, Brad has been producing and writing music and slowing releasing it into the public and club scene. In 2008, Brad felt it was time to take his dream to the next chapter. Brad approached his cousin (Neil Arruda) and best friend (Dan Migliaro) known as DJ Duo “Pushrz” to launch their own independent record company called “Suite Gurl Music Inc” .

The first two releases for the label came in the summer of 2009. SGM released “Brad Machado – Prance” and “Junitoshi – Supremacy”. The two releases were great stepping stones for the label. A few more release came shortly after, the remixes for “Supremacy” and “Underworld. In the summer of 2010; Brad released his first debut EP; called “Who’s This Girl”. The EP received positive support from: Ministry of Sound, Solaris International, Frank Frenzy, Markus Shulz.
